A few tips to heighten your chance of success

First. Is it urgent news?
If it is, check the "Urgent News" box, and we will review it within 30 minutes. Don't abuse this.

News Features

  • If you are pitching a feature story, please keep in mind that, in most cases, we begin producing a story as much as three months ahead of publication, and bigger story packages may have a lead time longer than that. That means a pitch intended for a December issue, for example, should be submitted no later than September - or even earlier. 

  • If you pitch a story that will require photography or video, know that we will have to find a student visual journalist in your area. If you happen to know of one whose work is awesome, mention it in your pitch. 

  • Be sure to answer the questions we ask thoughtfully. They help us to quickly evaluate your pitch.

  • If a story is dependent on interviewing a particular source, make sure you have access to that source or have done your best job researching how you might reach them (or their representative) before pitching the story.

  • Before you pitch, ask yourself if you've read a similar story before. If you have, we may have received a similar pitch already. We won't run a story that's already been told in iGeneration Youth magazine or another publication.

A few tips to heighten your chance of success

  • If you pitch a story that will require photography, know that a youth photographer has to be found in your area. If you happen to know of one whose work is awesome, mention it in your pitch. 
  • Be sure to answer these key questions in your pitch: Why is this story important or interesting? Why should it be told right now? A new band coming out isn't a great story on its own. New bands come out every day. Why might readers care about this band at this moment in time?
  • If a story is dependent on interviewing a particular source, make sure you have access to that source before pitching the story.
  • Before you pitch, ask yourself if you've read a similar story before. If you have, we may have received a similar pitch already. We won't run a story that's already been told in iGeneration Youth magazine or another publication.
